Sehi Mahié Rita Madeleine Sisso


For the last 20 years, in Cote d'Ivoire, the fight against child labor has become a public and political objective that mobilizes a diversity of actors, and which also gives rise to many controversies. The objective of this study is to demonstrate the impact of innovations in the fight against child labor in Côte d'Ivoire. Thus, on the basis of Child labor in Cote d’Ivoire from the 2008 Survey of Household Living Standard and the 2012-2014 National Action Plan dedicated to combating trafficking, exploitation and child labor, this study highlighted innovations at the institutional, regulatory and legislative levels and finally, the balance sheet of the actions led by the new committee set up. The results of our study showed a marked improvement in the fight in the cocoa industry. However, the impact of the new mechanisms on child labor in its entirety has not been established. Many efforts still remain to be made.

Keywords: impact, innovations, trafficking, child labor, Cote d’Ivoire.
